This new ecosystem of cyber experts (CIG) engages a broad range of professionals from the public and private sectors to better understand threats and responses.
Our first summit meeting of the year focused on topics including:
  • understanding threats like ransomware and how it’s impacting partnerships
  • red lines when it comes to industrial control systems
  • what happens now with data corruption in the mix
  • what’s actually driving the talent shortage and how must we address it
  • is there a difference between hack back and democratized defense
  • how to better educate Congress on the art of the possible in cyber right now
Thank you to our sponsors!
